Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, December 2011
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Grand Barossa Shiraz displays notes of mulberries, spice cake, blackberry preserves, anise and vanilla. Ripe, rich and full-bodied, the palate is nicely lifted by crisp acidity and supported by a medium level of velvety tannins, finishing long. Drink it now to 2017.”


Grand Barossa Cabernet 2011

90+ Points – erobertparker.com
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, December 2012
“The 2011 Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon contains around 52% Eden Valley fruit. Deep garnet-purple, it reveals notes of pure cassis on the nose plus some eucalypt, Mediterranean herbs and floral nuances. Medium-bodied with a good amount of flesh supported by a medium level of finely grained tannins and racy acid, it finishes long with an appealing herbal lift. Delicious now, it should keep to 2016+.”

Grand Barossa Cabernet 2009

89 Points – Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, December 2011

“Deep garnet-purple color and intense aromas of crème de cassis, crushed blackberries and black cherries plus nuances of Provence herbs and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied generously fruited in the mouth… and a long finish.”

87 Points – Wine Enthusiast
Joe Czerwinski , February 2012

“An easy drinking Cabernet, with varietally correct notes of cassis and dried herbs framed by soft tannins. There’s a sense of reserve to it, and enough dustiness on the finish to stand up to steaks, burgers or even lamb.”


Grand Barossa Chardonnay 2012

88 Points – Wine Spectator
Harvey Steiman, June 2013

“Fresh and generous, with an apricot edge to the pear and citrus flavors, finishing on a delicately creamy note. Drink now.”


Grand Barossa Riesling 2012

90 Points – Wine Spectator
Harvey Steiman, June 2013
“Light and tangy, with lime and white pepper notes complemented by a hint of green apple as the finish lingers. Shows depth and persistence. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made.”


Grand Barossa Riesling 2010

90 Points – Best Buy – Wine & Spirits

“This granite-edged riesling highlights lime zest, lime pulp and pineapple flavors with toasty lees complexity. It’s tight and mouthwatering, a white to chill for roast seafood sausages.”

89 Points – Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, December 2011
“The 2010 Grand Barossa Riesling is intensely scented of honeysuckle, lime leaf, grapefruit and kumquat.
Light-bodied, dry and crisp in the mouth, with good concentration, it has a long, citrusy finish.”
